Birdlife concerns raised<br />

over pathway proposal<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

BIRDLIFE WILL be harmed if a<br />

pathway is built along the western<br />

edge of the Avon-Heathcote Ihutai<br />

Estuary, groups say.<br />

The city council may consider options<br />

for an alternative route.<br />

The Avon-Heathcote Estuary<br />

Ihutai Trust and Redcliffs Residents<br />

Association are opposing the city<br />

council’s proposal to extend its 360<br />

walking and cycle trail along the<br />

estuary edge beside the Bromley<br />

oxidation ponds.<br />

Both groups have raised their<br />

concerns with the Linwood-Central-Heathcote<br />

Community Board.<br />

Estuary trust chairman Kit<br />

Doudney said the estuary is home<br />

to about 100 bird species and has<br />

recently been made part of the East<br />

Asian-Australasian Flyway. This<br />

means migratory birds which use<br />

the estuary, such as the bar-tailed<br />

godwit are protected.<br />

But Mr Doudney said constructing<br />

the proposed pathway will put<br />

godwits and other bird species in<br />

jeopardy.<br />

Said Mr Doudney: “The problem<br />

with the pathway incurring into a<br />

wildlife refuge is that the wildlife<br />

suffers from incursion of humans<br />

and often their companion animals<br />

such as dogs and on occasions, in<br />

this case, horses, on the estuary bed.<br />

oxidation ponds will harm birdlife.<br />

I've been running a bespoke software development company in<br />

Christchurch since the end of 20<strong>18</strong>. One of my biggest struggles has always<br />

been to find reliable and talented developers to help me with projects when<br />

things get busy. I originally reached out to the team at Vision College to do<br />

some mentoring. I mentioned my struggles and they put me in contact with<br />

one of their students, Declan.<br />

Declan has been such a help, his ability to be productive right away and the<br />

ease in which he picked up new concepts was impressive. It really is a<br />

testament to the fact that vision college isn't just teaching specific<br />

technologies and theory, but rather empowering their students to become<br />

lifelong learners. In the software development industry, you never stop<br />

learning. There is always something new and better,<br />

and Declan has really proven himself more than capable of keeping up. I<br />

look forward to a long term relationship with Vision College and am already<br />

talking to another student<br />

there to help more.<br />

Idle locomotive has family fuming<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

HAVING A locomotive’s engine<br />

running next to your house at<br />

the crack of dawn would be a<br />

nightmare for most people.<br />

For Saman Farahani, it is a<br />

harsh reality he and his family<br />

face up to three times a week.<br />

His home on Lowe St in<br />

Addington sits right next to the<br />

railway.<br />

Mr Farahani said over the<br />

past three months a train would<br />

occasionally stop between 6am<br />

and 6.30am and the locomotive’s<br />

engine would be idling outside<br />

the house.<br />

He said the combination of the<br />

noise and the shaking from the<br />

engine would wake up himself,<br />

his wife Sara and three-monthold<br />

daughter.<br />

He also said the smell of<br />

fumes fills up his house to the<br />

point where he cannot stop<br />

coughing.<br />

“First thing when I wake up, I<br />

cough because the house is full<br />

of the smell of gas,” he said.<br />

Mr Farahani said he was<br />

concerned for the health of his<br />

daughter.<br />

He said moving was not<br />

an option for him, with his<br />

tenancy contract at the<br />

property not running out<br />

until October.<br />

“The driver will stop outside<br />

UP CLOSE: Saman Farahani’s home will shake and fill up with fumes when a locomotive stops<br />

next to it.<br />

the house and the whole house<br />

will start shaking and it will be so<br />

loud you won’t be able to sleep.<br />

“I’m just asking for a bit of<br />

respect.”<br />

Mr Farahani said he had<br />

pleaded with the driver on<br />

numerous occasions park the<br />

locomotive further along the<br />

railway line where there are no<br />

houses, but was ignored.<br />

KiwiRail acting South Island<br />

general manager of operations<br />

Mark Heissenbuttel said it<br />

apologised for the disturbance<br />

and was investigating how to<br />

solve the issue as quickly as<br />

possible.<br />

“KiwiRail endeavours to be<br />

a good neighbour to those who<br />

live alongside the rail corridor,”<br />

he said.<br />

“Occasionally residents raise<br />

issues like this with us and wherever<br />

possible we try to adjust<br />

our operations to remove the<br />

nuisance.”<br />

Veterinary practice<br />

Brain tumour in a cat<br />

This is a remarkable story where an 13<br />

year old Norwegian Forest cat “ Sashenka”<br />

was diagnosed via CT imaging of having<br />

a brain tumour, “Meningioma” and<br />

successfully had surgery two weeks ago<br />

in a specialist hospital in Auckland to<br />

remove the tumour. Never in 30 years<br />

of being a vet have I had a client willing<br />

to proceed to surgery to remove a brain<br />

tumour in their pet, plus she survived and<br />

is thriving. She’s one very lucky cat with<br />

incredibly caring owners who wanted the<br />

best possible outcome for their precious<br />

cat.<br />

Sashenka first presented just before<br />

Christmas being a bit “off” - more<br />

clingy, vocalising more, seeming to<br />

have trouble going up and down stairs,<br />

difficulty navigating obstacles, seeming<br />

disorientated, scratching the wooden<br />

floor boards, pacing, kneading and off<br />

balance sometimes. She was a cat always<br />

up a tree and she stopped doing this.<br />

She wasn’t chasing her treats and started<br />

walking in circles. She was never seen<br />

seizuring though and continued eating.<br />

We examined Sashenka and ran an<br />

extensive array of blood and urine tests,<br />

X-rays and ultrasound examinations. We<br />

saw her 15 times in about three weeks.<br />

All testing was basically normal. We tried<br />

different medications and she stayed in<br />

the hospital on IV fluids but we couldn’t<br />

get a of handle on her diagnosis and<br />

there was no improvement at home. Her<br />

owner saw a different Sashenka than the<br />

cat we saw at the clinic.<br />

We consulted the services of Feline<br />

consultants and specialists but she was<br />

deteriorating quickly, having difficulty<br />

eating and appeared dull and not<br />

responsive to her owners at times. Steroid<br />

injections showed improvement but her<br />

bizarre behaviours did wax and wane<br />

with her worse clinical symptom being<br />

close to comatosed. We decided to CT<br />

Sashenka to find out what was really<br />

going on. We offer MRI (Forte Health)<br />

and CT (Pacific Radiology at Lincoln)<br />

at McMaster & Heap. The patients are<br />

sedated and the images taken from<br />

Open 7 days<br />

very fancy expensive computors. It’s<br />

painless for the pet and can give us many<br />

answers that other means of testing<br />

can’t deliver. The radiologist diagnosed<br />

Sashenka with a large intracranial brain<br />

lesion , most probably a meningioma.<br />

Other differentials included a glioma or<br />

astrocytoma.<br />

We consulted an experienced surgical<br />

team in Auckland who were keen to take<br />

over her case. After lengthy discussions<br />

with the owners it was decided to push<br />

forward with brain surgery, so Sashenka<br />

and her devoted owners headed to<br />

Auckland. Brain surgery isn’t a walk in the<br />

park and more tests had to be carried<br />

out on Sashenka. She was getting very<br />

used to needles now and thermometers??<br />

She had an MRI before the surgery and a<br />

CT after the surgery to confirm position<br />

of the titanium screws used to secure<br />

her cranium back in place. She received<br />

a blood transfusion on the day of the<br />

surgery and had an oesophageal feeding<br />

tube placed so that we were able to<br />

supply her nutritionally post surgery, in<br />

case she didn’t feel like eating. Once the<br />

tumour was removed it measured 2.6cm x<br />

3cm x 1.2cm - quite sizeable. She made an<br />

excellent recovery from her anaesthetic<br />

and stayed in the specialist hospital to be<br />

closely monitored for a few days.<br />

She had very specific discharge<br />

instructions including cage confinement<br />

for four weeks (an impossible requirement<br />

for Sashenka), physiotherapy on her<br />

back muscles and legs and medications<br />

including steroids, pain relief and<br />

antibiotics. Catherine has seen her<br />

recently and she appears to be doing<br />

really well - she even escaped her cage<br />

and was seen running up a tree - her<br />

favourite place to be, a birds eye view of<br />

life.<br />

Day 1 after the surgery.<br />

The tumour may grow back and<br />

Catherine is exploring chemotherapy<br />

options but for now Sashenka has her full,<br />

active life back again which is great news<br />

for everybody. She may pave the way in<br />

the future for other patients with brain<br />

tumours. Thank you to Sashenkas mum<br />

and dad for allowing me to write this<br />

article on her.<br />

Call for pathway not to go<br />

ahead close to estuary<br />

•From page 1<br />

“We absolutely welcome<br />

the idea of walking and<br />

cycling paths, it’s just that<br />

this is the wrong area to<br />

put it,” he said.<br />

Said Redcliffs Residents<br />

Association secretary Pat<br />

McIntosh: “It would be a<br />

very nice facility for people<br />

to be able to walk around<br />

the estuary edge but<br />

unfortunately it’s a nature<br />

reserve and it’s incredibly<br />

important for the wildlife<br />

at the estuary that they<br />

actually have some space<br />

where they’re understood.”<br />

A motion passed at the<br />

residents’ association’s<br />

<strong>February</strong> 3 meeting and<br />

emailed to the Linwood-<br />

Central-Heathcote<br />

Community Board said<br />

the proposed pathway<br />

“is in breach of local,<br />

national and international<br />

protections.<br />

“This area – the<br />

oxidation ponds, Linwood<br />

paddocks, Sandy Point<br />

and the adjacent shoreline<br />

– is a crucial refuge for<br />

a large variety of birds,<br />

including endangered<br />

migratory birds and rare<br />

New Zealand species.<br />

It is the last bastion of<br />

estuary edge that does<br />

not allow easy access by<br />

humans and dogs, and the<br />

only remaining mainly<br />

undisturbed area for<br />

waterfowl roosting in the<br />

estuary,” the motion said.<br />

Said city council head of<br />

parks Andrew Rutledge: An<br />

Ecological Impact Assessment<br />

is under way to report<br />

on how the pathway would<br />

impact on the ecological<br />

values of the site (primarily<br />

birdlife and lizards) and<br />

what the overall impacts<br />

would be if a range of potential<br />

mitigation measures<br />

were put in place.<br />

“Following further investigations<br />

and cost estimates,<br />

the council may be asked<br />

to consider options for the<br />

pathway, including a po-<br />

WORTH<br />

PROTECTING:<br />

The Avon-<br />

Heathcote Ihutai<br />

Estuary is home<br />

to about 100<br />

bird species<br />

including the<br />

bar-tailed<br />

godwit.<br />

tential alternative route and<br />

whether to put the proposal<br />

forward for public consultation.<br />

Because the details of<br />

the pathway haven’t been<br />

decided, the construction<br />

costs are not yet known,”<br />

he said.<br />

Linwood-Central-<br />

Heathcote Community<br />

Board member Tim<br />

Lindley, who is a member<br />

of the estuary trust, didn’t<br />

speak for the whole board<br />

but believes the pathway<br />

should not go-ahead close<br />

to the estuary. Instead, he<br />

said there are grass areas<br />

further away, which would<br />

be more suitable.<br />

He said he hopes the<br />

board will discuss the<br />

community’s concerns<br />

about the proposal this<br />

year and decide on the next<br />

step.<br />

Board’s plans open for discussion<br />

• By Louis Day and<br />

Matt Slaughter<br />

Kelly Barber<br />

THE PUBLIC can have a say<br />

on the priorities for the Coastal-<br />

Burwood Community Board for<br />

the first time.<br />

The city council is publicly<br />

consulting on the community<br />

board’s three-year plan and people<br />

have until Monday to give<br />

their thoughts on it.<br />

The board’s priorities within<br />

this plan are: improving Taiora:<br />

QEII Recreation<br />

and Sport<br />

Centre, planning<br />

for an additional<br />

community<br />

facility<br />

in Burwood,<br />

supporting the<br />

transformation<br />

and<br />

activation of<br />

the red zone,<br />

improve roading and transportation<br />

links and making the area<br />

appealing and attractive.<br />

Some specifics of these<br />

priorities include improving<br />

disability access to the changing<br />

and toilet facilities at QEII,<br />

upgrading the spa pool facilities<br />

there, bringing forward funding<br />

for the repair of Pages Rd and<br />

the entrance to New Brighton<br />

and repairing New Brighton<br />

Rd.<br />

The board’s chairman Kelly<br />

Barber said the goals it has set<br />

for the next three years are about<br />

tidying up the wards, getting big<br />

projects finished and bringing<br />

more people to Christchurch’s<br />

east.<br />

“We’ve got the clock tower<br />

just about to be finished and<br />

unveiled, we’ve got the hot pools<br />

very close to being finished,<br />

we’ve got the streetscaping work<br />

on Marine Pde also just about to<br />

be finished.<br />

“There’s plenty happening<br />

here and we just need a chance<br />

to tidy things up and get it looking<br />

great,” he said.<br />

Coastal-Burwood is the only<br />

board to have its plan out for<br />

GOALS: The<br />

consultation<br />

period for<br />

people to give<br />

feedback on<br />

the Coastal-<br />

Burwood<br />

Community<br />

Board’s<br />

priorities for<br />

the next three<br />

years is open<br />

until Monday.<br />

consultation at this stage. All<br />

other community boards<br />

across Christchurch will have<br />

their plans out for feedback until<br />

early March when they come<br />

out.<br />

These plans will guide the<br />

boards’ decisions on local<br />

activities, projects, facilities<br />

and advocacy on behalf of<br />

communities.<br />

Feedback sought<br />

on Cumnor Tce<br />

footpath proposal<br />

A PROPOSED plan to make<br />

a section of Cumnor Tce in<br />

Woolston one way to allow for a<br />

footpath is open for community<br />

feedback.<br />

The section between Chapmans<br />

Rd and Maunsell St is part of the<br />

Heathcote Expressway Major<br />

Cycle Route.<br />

Another section, between<br />

Maunsell St and Marshall St, is<br />

already one-way heading north.<br />

The proposed change to<br />

the already approved cycleway<br />

design will allow for the<br />

retention of the footpath on<br />

the non-cycleway side of the<br />

road, improving pedestrian<br />

and road safety.<br />

It will also ensure there is no<br />

impact on the Heathcote River<br />

following concerns over any potential<br />

effect on the freshwater<br />

habitat, with a narrower road not<br />

encroaching on the river environment.<br />

People can share their<br />

views on the proposal with<br />

city council staff at a drop-in<br />

session on the corner of Cumnor<br />

Tce and Chapmans Rd on<br />

<strong>February</strong> 26 from 10am to 2pm<br />

officer Bruce Irvine said the<br />

signs are to bring attention to the<br />

conditions and wants them to<br />

encourage people to think about<br />

their escape routes when in these<br />

areas, including Bottle Lake Forest,<br />

New Brighton beach, Godley Head<br />

and other parks and recreation<br />

areas in the Port Hills.<br />

“In Australia, people became<br />

trapped, because their escape<br />

route had been blocked by fire<br />

which was moving more rapidly<br />

than expected. If you going to<br />

smoke there, don’t. Take your<br />

rubbish with you, anything<br />

reflective, glass, metal etc that<br />

could get hot in the sun, take it<br />

with you,” he said.<br />

Pools cool pooches’ paws<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

SUMMER IS a good time to<br />

paws and reflect and for these<br />

SPCA pups, they’re doing just<br />

that.<br />

It’s a pool paw-ty at the<br />

Christchurch Hornby centre after<br />

it was inundated with donations,<br />

following a call on Facebook for<br />

any unwanted or old backyard<br />

pools that could make these dog’s<br />

summer last fur-ever.<br />

As a result, more than 15 pools<br />

were donated, including five new<br />

pools costing about $<strong>18</strong>0 each by<br />

Bunnings Warehouse.<br />

SPCA community fundraising<br />

and events co-ordinator Kelsea<br />

Nelson-Cummins said the single<br />

Facebook post asking for old or<br />

unwanted pools “did really well.”<br />

“People have been really, really<br />

generous and the dogs, as you<br />

can see in the photos, absolutely<br />

love it,’’ she said.<br />

“It’s been so hot, sometimes for<br />

our bigger dogs, it’s nice for them<br />

to fully submerge in water.<br />

“Believe it or not, because we<br />

have so many facilities they are<br />

pretty much all being used. We<br />

squirrelled away a couple of the<br />

new bigger pools because as with<br />

dogs, bless them, there is a bit of<br />

wear and tear with them jumping<br />

in and out of the pools.’’<br />

Kit and Charlie are both currently<br />

up for adoption and the<br />

SPCA is also looking for volunteers<br />

for its annual appeal next<br />

month.<br />

“We are still looking for collectors,<br />

so if anyone is yet to sign<br />

up and it’s on their new year<br />

resolutions list to volunteer for<br />

a charity, definitely do,” Miss<br />

Nelson-Cummins said.<br />

Bus drivers play<br />

matchmaker to<br />

chance romance<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

SHE WAS from Sumner,<br />

he was from North<br />

Canterbury.<br />

They had just met and<br />

got talking at the central<br />

bus interchange on Lichfield<br />

St about 1.30am last<br />

Sunday while waiting to<br />

catch separate<br />

trips home<br />

after a night in<br />

town.<br />

But as they<br />

were getting<br />

to know each<br />

other, it was<br />

time to part<br />

ways.<br />

Following a bout of<br />

Roe van<br />

der Merwe<br />

regret over not getting the<br />

man’s phone number, the<br />

woman turned to her bus<br />

driver for help when she<br />

got off the bus.<br />

That bus driver was Roe<br />

van der Merwe, who is also<br />

the co-ordinator for the<br />

new ‘Midnight Express’<br />

Sumner service which<br />

started on January 26.<br />

He now remembers<br />

nothing about his passenger,<br />

except that she was 23<br />

years old, blonde, and lives<br />

in Sumner.<br />

“When she got off in<br />

Sumner she was like ‘I<br />

know I should have done<br />

this then, but I’m just going<br />

to put myself out there.<br />

Can you please call the<br />

Rangiora bus?’<br />

“So I called up the Rangiora<br />

bus, the driver passed<br />

her phone to the guy and<br />

I passed my phone to [the<br />

woman] and they had a<br />

conversation. Numbers<br />

INVESTED: Two matchmaking bus drivers want to<br />

know if anything eventuated from two strangers<br />

meeting at the central bus interchange.<br />

were exchanged.<br />

“According to the Rangiora<br />

bus driver, the guy was<br />

“quite chuffed” when he<br />

found out she wanted his<br />

number.”<br />

Now, two “emotionally<br />

invested” bus drivers want<br />

to know if their matchmaking<br />

skills have paid off.<br />

Mr van der Merwe told<br />

the woman to get in contact<br />

with Bentley Transport<br />

or Christchurch Shuttles<br />

and Tours, which run the<br />

Midnight Express lines, to<br />

let someone know if anything<br />

came of the brief but<br />

memorable encounter.<br />

“We are still waiting to<br />

hear from them to see if<br />

they’ve gone on their first<br />

date yet.”<br />

• If you were one of<br />

the two involved in<br />

the Midnight Express<br />

romance, or if you think<br />

you know who it may<br />

have been, email jess.<br />

No issues with Midnight<br />

Express bus service<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

THINGS HAVE been<br />

running smoothly for a<br />

new bus service which<br />

takes party goers from the<br />

city to Sumner.<br />

Bentley Transport or<br />

Christchurch Shuttles and<br />

Tours started a six-month<br />

trial running the “Midnight<br />

Express” Sumner<br />

service on January 26.<br />

It departs from the<br />

Christchurch Bus Interchange<br />

on Lichfield St and<br />

follows the same route<br />

as Metro’s Purple Line at<br />

1.15, 2.15 and 3.15 am on<br />

Sundays.<br />

Redcliffs resident Topsy<br />

Rule had initial concerns<br />

about the service, as she<br />

experienced issues with a<br />

similar service which was<br />

operating before the <strong>February</strong><br />

22, 2011, earthquake.<br />

Passengers would make<br />

noise and vomit when getting<br />

off at stops along the<br />

bus route.<br />

But she said there have<br />

been no problems so far<br />

and she has heard no negative<br />

feedback from other<br />

THE CRASH Bash<br />

road safety programme<br />

being performed across<br />

Canterbury schools over<br />

the next few weeks will<br />

aim to make teenagers<br />

aware of the dangers of<br />

speeding.<br />

The performance,<br />

targeted towards year 11-<br />

13 students, will tour 30<br />

schools during term one<br />

including Avonside Girls’<br />

High School, St Margaret’s<br />

College, Rangi Ruru<br />

Girls’ School, Catholic<br />

Cathedral College, St<br />

Andrew’s College and<br />

Christchurch Boys’ High<br />

School.<br />

Crash Bash is an interactive<br />

stage performance<br />

that tours secondary<br />

schools, spreading the<br />

message to young people<br />

about the importance of<br />

making safe choices when<br />

driving.<br />

This year’s performance,<br />

What’s the Rush?<br />

is going to focus on intersection<br />

safety and the<br />

risks of speed.<br />

Said city council transport<br />

operations manager<br />

Steffan Thomas: “Speed<br />

determines both the likelihood<br />

of a crash occurring<br />

and the severity of<br />

the outcome. Regardless<br />

of what causes a crash,<br />

whether people walk away<br />

or are carried away will<br />

depend on the speed their<br />

vehicles are travelling.<br />

“We want young people<br />

to be aware of the risks<br />

that come with driving<br />

too fast and to understand<br />

that the choices they<br />

make when they get<br />

behind the wheel of a<br />

car have consequences –<br />

potentially life-changing<br />

consequences,’’ Mr<br />

Thomas said.<br />

Mr Thomas said drivers<br />

residents in Sumner and<br />

Redcliffs when she has been<br />

out in the community.<br />

Sumner service co-ordinator<br />

Roe van der Merwe<br />

said no complaints have<br />

been received since the trial<br />

began.<br />

He said there is an aim<br />

for the service to be “as<br />

courteous as possible.”<br />

Mr van der Merwe said<br />

at the moment, passenger<br />

numbers are on the lower<br />

side but the company is<br />

working to increase its<br />

profile.<br />

Students warned of speeding<br />

seven times more likely<br />

to be involved in a crash<br />

resulting in a fatal<br />

or serious injury than<br />

other drivers.<br />

“Data also shows that<br />

young restricted drivers<br />

are more at risk of having<br />

a serious crash in the<br />

first six to 12 months<br />

of driving solo on their<br />

restricted licence that an<br />

at any other time in their<br />

lives,” he said.<br />

Crash Bash is led by<br />

the city council, with<br />

funding support from the<br />

Agency. The performance<br />

is developed by the Court<br />

Record-breaking effort<br />

for cancer fundraiser<br />

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’<br />

High School’s rowing team<br />

has set a new world record and<br />

raised more than $22,000 for<br />

Leukaemia and Blood Cancer<br />

New Zealand in the process.<br />

Ed Lopas, a member of the<br />

school’s rowing team, was<br />

diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma<br />

– a form of blood cancer<br />

– last year. It was only fitting that<br />

the 16-year-old had the honour<br />

of finishing the last stint of the<br />

successful world record attempt<br />

last Tuesday. The team of 61 rowers<br />

set a new world record for the<br />

longest continual team erg (rowing<br />

machine) by a group aged<br />

under-19. Their time of 145hr<br />

10min smashed the previous<br />

record of 96hr.<br />

“It was pretty special having<br />

everyone cheer me on to the finish,”<br />

said Lopas.<br />

The team travelled a total<br />

distance of 1937km. On a map,<br />

their travels took them from<br />

school, north to Blenheim, west<br />

to Greymouth, south to Queenstown,<br />

east to Dunedin and up<br />

SH1 back to school.<br />

The school’s rowing manager<br />

Ricardo De Sousa said he’s been<br />

blown away by the team’s commitment<br />

to the record-breaking<br />

achievement.<br />

“The boys have been absolutely<br />

incredible. We thought it would<br />

be a bit of a headache trying to get<br />

boys on the egg at silly hours of<br />

the morning. It’s not the most fun<br />

thing to be on and the boys tend to<br />

shy away from it, but they wanted<br />

to do it for Ed,” said De Sousa.<br />

Senior rowers did shifts of<br />

90min with some of the movies<br />

doing shifts between 30-45min.<br />

The team began the world record<br />

big on <strong>February</strong> 5 and had<br />

surpassed the previous world<br />

PEGASUS POST<br />

record by the following Sunday<br />

afternoon.<br />

Ed was diagnosed with<br />

Hodgkin’s lymphoma in July last<br />

year.<br />

After five months of successful<br />

chemotherapy, Ed was cleared to<br />

start physical activity again and<br />

hopes to row at the Maadi Cup<br />

Tasty Bites<br />

PEGASUS POST<br />

No more beeting around the bush<br />

• By Ian Knott<br />

Beetroot deserves so<br />

much more than being<br />

dumped from a can onto<br />

a green salad. Packed<br />

with essential nutrients,<br />

this vibrant vegetable is a<br />

great source of fibre, folate,<br />

manganese, potassium,<br />

iron, and vitamin C<br />

Beetroot and halloumi<br />

sliders with chilli jam<br />

Serves 4<br />

Ingredients<br />

400g tin chickpeas, rinsed and<br />

drained<br />

1 tsp ground cumin<br />

1-2 hot green chillis, finely<br />

chopped<br />

250g raw beetroot, peeled and<br />

grated (wear gloves to avoid<br />

staining your hands)<br />

2 Tbsp chopped parsley<br />

50g fresh wholemeal<br />

breadcrumbs<br />

1 egg<br />

olive oil<br />

Halloumi 1 slice per slider<br />

Handful of rocket<br />

8 or 12 small buns (brioche if you<br />

can get them), split and cut side<br />

toasted<br />

Chilli jam to serve<br />

Directions<br />

Put the chickpeas in a bowl<br />

and mash them roughly, add<br />

the cumin and chilli and mash<br />

again. Add the beetroot, parsley,<br />

breadcrumbs, egg and plenty of<br />

seasoning. Mix well and form into<br />

8 or 12 small patties.<br />

Heat about 1cm of oil in a<br />

frying pan and fry the patties on<br />

each side until they are crisp and<br />

brown. Drain on kitchen paper.<br />

Fry the halloumi briefly until it<br />

starts to brown a little. Put a few<br />

rocket leaves on the base of each<br />

bun, add a patty and a slice of<br />

halloumi followed by a spoon<br />

of chilli jam then put the lid on.<br />

A cocktail stick will hold the lot<br />

together. Serve 2 or 3 per person.<br />

Roast beetroot soup with<br />

caramelised onion and blue<br />

cheese toast<br />

Serves 6<br />

Ingredients<br />

1kg beetroots, topped, tailed,<br />

scrubbed clean and cut into large<br />

pieces<br />

1 red onion, cut into wedges<br />

3 cloves garlic<br />

½ a small bunch of thyme, plus a<br />

few leaves<br />

500ml vegetable stock<br />

100ml crème fraîche<br />

½ lemon, juiced<br />

For the toast<br />

3 slices sourdough, cut in half<br />

4 Tbsp caramelised onion<br />

chutney<br />

150g blue cheese<br />

handful of walnuts, roughly<br />

chopped<br />

Directions<br />

Heat the oven to 200 deg C<br />

(<strong>18</strong>0 deg C fan forced). Put the<br />

beetroots, red onion and garlic<br />

into a roasting tin, pour in 150ml<br />

of water, season well and scatter<br />

over the thyme. Cover with a<br />

double layer of foil and put into<br />

the oven for 1hr 15min or until<br />

the beetroots are very tender to<br />

the point of a knife.<br />

Remove the foil, peel the<br />

beetroots and discard the skin,<br />

then chop into small pieces. Put<br />

into a pan with the onion, garlic<br />

and vegetable stock, bring to the<br />

boil then use a hand blender to<br />

whizz until completely smooth,<br />

or ladle into a blender and whizz.<br />

Season, then stir in the crème<br />

fraîche and lemon juice, and<br />

whizz again. Keep warm.<br />

Heat the grill to high. Put the<br />

bread pieces onto a baking tray<br />

and toast on either side. Spread<br />

each piece with the chutney and<br />

then add a piece of blue cheese,<br />

some thyme leaves and walnuts.<br />

Grill until melted.<br />

Spoon the soup into bowls and<br />

top with the toast.
